As with other independence days and significant anniversaries, I will reach out to London’s Jamaican community to share in their day of celebration and highlight its importance. I am aware that cultural and community groups are planning to host events across the city to mark this important day and myself and the Deputy Mayors will stay connected to these groups as their plans develop.
